Best Western Premier Hotel Kukdo

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed for eight nights and think this is a good hotel for business travelers. I give it a solid 4 stars.

It was a nice hotel in a good location. the only thing bad was the beds - very hard and uncomfortable.

Great location and friendly staff in an area where most important tourist sited are including palaces and museums

The hotel had great service and excellent staff. The location is not the most scenic in Seoul. But it is walking distance to Myeong-dong and Dongdaemun History and Culture Park. I would recommend it if you're not looking for the flashiest location.

everything was nice. room was clean and cozy. its surrounding is a little noisy because it is quite close to a market. In front of the hotel, construction was about to start, which might be a little bothersome in the near future (of course the view was not that great due to the barren site). i found that this hotel was a theater in the past. you can think of horror movies when you sleep, which could be an interesting experience that you can't have in other places. But i am not saying this hotel is horrible - it is quite nice and good for a resonable place in seoul though.

Hotel Kukdo is conveniently located right on a stop of the ICN airport bus 2015. We initiated several sightseeing tours that started there and every tour worked well. We ate at the dinner buffet, which was very nice, as well as the breakfast buffet. The rooms are also very nice.

Awesome hotel in great area! Definitely recommend it!

it was really clean and nice hotel! I stayed for few days with my foreigner friend and she liked it. Probably I will visit again.

train station is close and airport shuttle stops in front of hotel . overall of this hotel is good

Hotel was great for our needs. Little bit of a travel from the airport but the hotel itself was great and comfortable and the staff was very friendly. Would stay here again.

It was near Electronic market in Seoul, down town, close to the railroad station, shuttle bus to shopping town, Myeong-dong and next to subway station. Airport shuttle bus stops there every 30 minutes, and easy to grab a taxi. But room was little bit small, not many choice of restaurants around.

My room was smaller than expected for a 4 star hotel and the location wasn't exactly in what I would call a 'nice neighborhood.' Definitely convenient to the subway - 1/2 block away. Clean room and nice staff.

ok..it is close to attractions and subway station..the subway is good to take

good value for money. I would stay here again..good location..airport bus stops right at hotel..

The hotel is excellent. Staff is friendly and amenities really awesome. Even the doorman was helpful in loading unloading our luggage and holding the airport shuttle for us and didn't accept a tip! That's rare. Shuttle from airport drops off right outside. It is truly better than a 5* and worth the price. Only downside is its a bit away from the center of activity but a $3 cab ride or a 10/15 minute walk gets you there. We asked for a room with a view and we're given the 19th floor. Wonderful stay - highly recommend and will visit back.

good location,bus is under the hotel,you can go shopping easily,food mart around the hotel.

Very clean and friendly staff. Pretty close to main downtown areas and sites. Also easy access to the subway. Breakfast was over priced and with no options nearby you have no alternatives. Other than that its a good deal and a very nice place.

This hotel is not to far from central Seoul but the neighborhood is not very nice. For Seoul I thought the area was rather run down. I only stayed here because my hotel of choice was booked out. The staff was friendly and spoke good English, but I don't think I will stay here again. Alan Sacramento CA

As a foreigner, Korean is not my mastered language and I had a hard time verbally telling taxi driver where I want to go...i had to write everything down in han-gu....except for this place, just say Kukdo Hotel (with an accent) and most taxi drivers knows this place...ahhh...what a relief! Staffwise, it was pleasant, above global average, but I have meet so many more friendlier Koreans in and around Seoul. Location is very close to subway station, use exit #10, and you are literally steps away! Nothing really closeby to eat. Theres a small ajumma street food cafe to the left of the hotel as you walk out, if you need some food to hold you over-not the best though. I got a partial view of N-tower, which was nice. Make sure you press "Privacy" botton ON, if you plan on sleeping in. There is no added chain lock like most U.S hotels, to keep unwanted or unexpected guests out. I have seen other comments saying that the cleaning ladies got in while they were in the shower, this is the reason why. Rooms are small but adequate. Party of two people, would be crowded if more stayed together...maybe need to upgrade to larger room. I love the vanity space for all my stuff! The lock box was unbolted (like someone else had commented), but my belongings were ok...i felt like it was safe during the whole stay...

The room at this hotel was incredibly quiet, clean and relaxing. While the location wasn't ideal to walking to the main sights/shopping, it was certainly close enough to everything (10 minute taxi ride) and for the value, couldn't be beat. The money I saved by staying here more than made up for the $3 - $4 taxi fares it cost me to get to/from the main sights (that I couldn't walk to). However, if you are a walker, you can access some of the main areas within a 20 minute walk. I didn't mind walking as it gave me an opportunity to experience the city as it really is, not only in the touristy/shopping districts. I was a woman traveling alone and this city is VERY safe and non-threatening. The only downfall, there is NOWHERE to eat immediately surrounding this hotel so you have to plan around your meals. I ate two meals in the hotel and they were both overpriced and the food was edible, nothing more. There are only two convenience stores located adjacent to the hotel where you can buy beverages, snacks and soup. The hotel room has a small refrigerator.

The hotel had great service and excellent staff. The location is not the most scenic in Seoul. But it is walking distance to Myeong-dong and Dongdaemun History and Culture Park. I would recommend it if you're not looking for the flashiest location.

everything was nice. room was clean and cozy. its surrounding is a little noisy because it is quite close to a market. In front of the hotel, construction was about to start, which might be a little bothersome in the near future (of course the view was not that great due to the barren site). i found that this hotel was a theater in the past. you can think of horror movies when you sleep, which could be an interesting experience that you can't have in other places. But i am not saying this hotel is horrible - it is quite nice and good for a resonable place in seoul though.
